Can I go back to last restore point due to virus?

I allowed my 5 years old to play a game on my computer and when he was finished, this was on the screen. He said he tried to close it but it just kept popping up again and again. I'm pretty sure I have a virus now because it takes over when I try to do anything. I have school work that I hadn't saved anywhere else.

Sorry to say but it will not be useful to restore and maybe it can cause more problems. To solve this issue you should follow these steps:

1. Attach a new hard drive.

2. Transfer all your data to this new drive under the protection of antivirus.

3. Wipe the old hard drive and install a fresh copy of the operating system.

4. Install antivirus and update definitions via the web.

5. Now it is time to transfer all data back to old hard drive under the protection of antivirus.

I am sure this works. Try to use Microsoft Security essentials as an antivirus as it is the best I have ever used.
